A delegation from Manitoba will be making a presentation at the United Nations Monday.

 

The Institute for International Women's Rights Manitoba delegation will be hosting an event during the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN.

 

The event is called "Risks for Canadian Indigenous Women Transitioning to an Urban Environment" and will focus on the session's emerging theme "the Empowerment of Indigenous Women."

 

The delegation making the presentation is comprised of a number of different Manitoba-based organizations who support the rights of women and are involved with the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

 

Mary Scott, co-founder and board member of the I.I.W.R.M., said "As a small NGO from Canada, it is good to see we can support this remarkable delegation, taking their stories to the United Nations"

 

The event aims to education the global community and Canadian Government representatives about the challenges Indigenous women face, such as marginalization, poverty and exploitation, as well as share some of the community-driven solutions that are taking place.
